Alright, I've been hard at work recording children's stories (in the public domain) read by volunteers, editing them and then uploading them to our podcast website.
It has been a fantastic experience - I've learned a lot and am still learning. Some recording issues are unsolvable - like, what do you do in a building where EVERY room has a rattling air condition vent (or several) and if you render them useless you'll end up sweating out the volunteer and yourself?
I've found some great, user friendly tools and set-ups and some that aren't as easy but are necessary.
It took me about four months of research (the kind you do here and there and on weekends) .
It's a wonderfully geeky world with great volunteers. We're getting some favorites and eclectic materials recorded - it's great.
